Feature Film
A feature film is a film (also called a motion picture, movie, or just film) with a running time long enough to be considered the principal or sole film to fill a program. The notion of how long this should be has varied according to time and place. According to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the American Film
Film
Institute, and the British Film
Film
Institute, a feature film runs for at least 40 minutes, while the Screen Actors Guild

holds that it is 80 minutes or longer. Most feature films are between 70 and 210 minutes long. The first dramatic feature film was the 60-minute The Story of the Kelly Gang (1906, Australia)[1]. The first (proto)-feature-length adaptation was Les Misérables (1909, U.S.)

The New Janitor
The New Janitor was the 27th comedy from Keystone Studios to feature Charlie Chaplin. The film is arguably one of his best for the studio, and a precursor to a key Essanay Studios short, The Bank. The film also demonstrates the differences that Chaplin had with Keystone comedy in that it is a coherent whole in which the stock characters actually fill some emotional center. Chaplin brings a certain complexity to his janitor, unusual to the comedy factory of Mack Sennett. The film, which stars among Sennett's bit players Jess Dandy, Al St. John, John T. Dillon, and Helen Carruthers, is far more centered and clear in direction. Comedy flows from within the story rather than as a by-product of story. After all this is a typical bank robbery storyline.Contents1 Plot 2 Reviews 3 Cast 4 External linksPlot[edit] The hero, a janitor played by Chaplin, is fired from work for accidentally knocking his bucket of water out the window and onto his boss, the chief banker (Tandy)
